I'm a Canadian ...EH
Rocks and plains and visions of trains from sea to sea
Lakes and streams and passionate dreams of a true north strong and free
Mountains of snow, the forest below, hopes and fears
Frozen lands and the rugged hands of Canadian pioneers
This is my Canada, this is my home, my nation
From St. John's to Victoria, this is my, this is my Canada
This is my Canada, Canada
I’m a Canadian, Eh
That’s all you have to do is say “eh”
It’s the Canadian Way to say “eh”
To be Canadian is to say “eh”
It’s so Canadian to say “eh”
I went searching for my Canadian identity
To find out what makes me …. me
Is it that I treat people so nicely
Or that I can communicate bilingually
Mais oui, comment ça va, eh?
What is it that makes us different from the rest?
What is that we do when we’re at our best?
Where do we fit in the global situation?
And what do people say when they talk about our nation?
Well we have 10 provinces and 3 territories
And we have our share of legends and glories
But what really makes us stand out in a crowd
Is when we say out loud
Eh is only a 2 letter word
But it can cut whole sentences down by a third
For instance: isn’t that right? Don’t you agree? You don’t say!
Can all be replaced just by saying “eh”
Not only is it easy and so simple to do
But it turns out to be quite handy too
You see we have a great reputation
Whenever we travel when we’re on vacation
You can bask in this Canadian praise
If you learn to use this world-famous phrase
In the event you might have missed it before
Here it is once more
Happy Canada Day
I am proud to be a Canadian!!! EH!!!
